Cops hope to net intern for scenes of crime

Krystin Carby (238x300).jpgCNS): The RCIPS said it hopes that a local student will be considering a career with the police after she was placed with the Criminal Investigation Department working alongside Scenes of Crime staff as part of the police intern programme.  Krsytin Carby is studying forensic photography in Miami, and was the, police said, an ideal candidate to be placed with the RCIPs. “I’m very interested in the forensic approach to solving crime,” she said. “I find it fascinating to see how the behind the scenes examination of DNA and fingerprints contribute to the overall criminal investigation strategies.

“It’s a vital part of police work and an area where I hope to specialise. That’s why I was delighted when I was offered a place with the RCIPS,”
Krystin added.

The RCIPS has 13 (thirteen) interns working in a variety of departments including Process, Human Resources and Fleet Management. All of the interns have been placed within departments that fit with their skills, studies and their aspirations for the future.

“All of our interns are doing a first class job, they are keen and they are committed to learning as much about the organisation as they can in the four weeks they will be working with us,” said Acting Chief Superintendent Marlon Bodden. “It was clear from the outset that there was only one place that Krystin should be with her skills in forensics and photography – that was Scenes of Crime. This is only her second week with us but already she has greatly impressed the staff she is working with.”

Bodden said the RCIPS sees the intern programme as an opportunity to showcase what the service does and as  a way to encourage local people to join and see how applying their skills and studies in their chosen field, make a significant difference to community.
